On July 9th of this year, we bought a replacement hot water heater after the thirty-plus-year-old one died. The new one lasted two months. We are in negotiations to get it replaced because the upper AND lower thermostats were replaced three days ago and now no longer work. They want to replace the element(s) before giving us a whole replacement water heater.
I am beginning to smell lemons every time I turn on the hot water tap.
